Joy Unlimited Youth Mass Choir is a youth choir composed of 100 young people who have united to share their God-given talents and to spread the gospel through song. The members range in age from pre-teen to young adult. Founded in 1990 by director John B. Samuel, the Joy Unlimited Youth Mass Choir began with 30 members and has had as many as 180 choir members at one time. Since its inception, Joy Unlimited has grown spiritually and vocally, developing musical gifts while performing regularly in the tri-state area as one of Philadelphia's leading youth choirs. Joy Unlimited has had the privileges of performing with Majorie Judith Vincent, Miss America 1991; singing the "Star Spangled Banner" for the Philadelphia 76ers and Youth Spectacular in March, 1992; and performing in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. during a pre-inaugural celebration for the Governor of Pennsylvania, Tom Ridge. They have had the opportunity to perform in concert with the Wilmington Chester Mass Choir, the Gabriel Hardiman Delegation, the Clayton White Singers, and Vickie Winans. Joy Unlimited has also performed extensively in the Philadelphia community at such events as the Black Family Reunion, Unity Day, Praise in the Park, Make It A Night, and the annual Mayor's Christmas Tree Lighting. Their television appearances have included performances on Singstation, Visions, and Dialogue and the Today's show. In 1995, the choir recorded their first gospel album, We've Come To Worship.

They also performed at the 1998 Marian Anderson Awards and appeared with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, both at the Mann Music Center.
